You know I love to drink my share
Of whiskey, beer, and wine
But lately I've had one too many one too many times
So bartender I've been thinkin' up a drinkin' resolution
I've thought about it long and hard
And here is my solution

Cut me off at one tonight
That's gonna be my limit
Help me look out for my elbow
Watch how much i bend it
I can't stay out all night no more
I gotta get home early
So cut me off at one tonight
Or about one thirty

If they held a honkytonk marathon
You know i'd win the prize
Cause every night when i crawl home the sun gets in my eyes
But tonight it's gonna be different
Yeah i'm finally cuttin' down
In fact i feel so good
I think i'll buy another round

So cut me off at two tonight
That's gonna be my limit
Help me look out for my elbow
Watch how much i bend it
I can't stay out all night no more
I gotta get home early
So cut me off at two tonight
Or about two thirty

Well there's more to life than fun and games
And it's high time that i learn
There's times you gotta sacrifice
And i guess that it's my turn

So cut me off at three tonight
That's gonna be my limit
Help me look out for my elbow
Watch how much i bend it
I can't stay out all noght no more
I gotta get home early
So cut me off at three tonight
Or about three thirty

Yeah cut me off at three tonight
Or about three thirty
Yeah....
